S-Line – NIKKOR quality at Its Absolute Best
At the top of the ever-expanding NIKKOR Z lens lineup, S-Line lenses push Nikon’s tradition of optical excellence and innovation to unprecedented new heights. Superior performance and resolution. Sophisticated features and operability. Specialized technologies and reliability enhancements. All while taking full advantage of the monumental Nikon Z mount and adhering to the strictest image quality and build standards.
Mesmerizing, Distortion-free Wide Shots
Capture so much more of a scene, with clarity and sharpness throughout the entire frame. 24mm is well-regarded as an exceptional focal length for establishing expansive views, with or without subjects, and the NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S’s ability to produce edge to edge sharpness, even at its widest aperture, make it invaluable for wide-angle applications, even in low light.
Captivating Establishing Shots and More
As a video lens, the NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S shines as a go-to for incredibly steady handheld establishing shots, as well as exquisitely composed environmental wide shots and interviews with a sense of place. It’s superb aperture control delivers smooth exposure changes without the impression of ‘stepping’ when transitioning from interior to exterior during the same shot.
Comprehensive Distortion Control
An Extra-low Dispersion (ED) element corrects chromatic aberrations (optical color defects). Nano Crystal Coat (N) virtually eliminates flare, ghosting and coma. And optical advancements of the Z mount and S-Line render point-light sources sharper than ever without the usual diamond-shaped distortion—perfect for environmental portraits, nightscapes and more.
One of the many advantages of the larger Z mount is its ability to retain even illumination, especially at the corners of the frame. This results in bright, even exposures with minimal vignetting.
Finely detailed high resolution photography can sometimes be susceptible to lens aberrations, such as color fringing, especially at close ranges. The NIKKOR Z 24mm f/1.8 S incorporates an all-new multi-focusing system, consisting of two AF drive units precisely synchronized to deliver fast, accurate autofocusing and drastically reduce aberrations across the entire zoom range.
Powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor and enhanced by the additional light gathered by the Z Mount, focusing is fast, silent and accurate. Great for stills; even better for video.
Dust and Drip Resistant
Extensively sealed to keep dust and moisture out, especially around all moving parts of the lens barrel, for worry-free durability.
Dual Detect 5 Axis VR
Uses Z cameras’ superior in-camera image stabilization system for up to 5 stops of pitch, roll, yaw, X and Y shake correction when used with Z cameras that feature in-camera VR. Additional electronic VR (e-VR) during video capture.
